Back in the 90s, the words "real-time strategy" were associated with two companies — Blizzard and Westwood. While the former continues to carry the torch with its StarCraft franchise, the latter — along with the Command & Conquer name — was absorbed into EA, an event from which it never quite recovered. Still, C&C is fondly remembered for many things: mammoth tanks, the ion cannon, hammy acting and its killer soundtrack.
And what do you people do with awesome music? That do covers of them, that's what. Russian guitarist Michael Sobin recently did his own rendition of C&C's "Act on Instinct", though he's named his performance "Act of Instinct".
I know "Target (Mechanical Man)" is burned into my psyche with indelible ink. I can't really think of sending grenadiers to their doom without that song playing in my head.
For the Dune 2000 fans out there, Sobin's also cranked out a cover of "Rise of the Harkonnen", which sounds like it'd make for an awesome Guitar Hero track. Ah well, things we can only wish for.
